Galens Medical Society has set
a $6,500 goal for its 27th annual
Christmas tag days tomorrow and
Saturday, with funds earmarked
for the benefit of children in Uni-
versity Hospital.
The 24 members of the society,
an honorary for juniors and sen-
iors in the Medical School, will
man donation buckets at stations
throughout the campus tomorrow,
shifting their activities to down-
town Ann Arbor on Saturday, ac-
cording to Mary Lubeck, '55, Ga-
lens publicity chairman.

Workshop on the ninth floor of the
hospital is the primary interest of
Galens, according to Lubeck. Shop
operation is entirely dependent on
the Galens for funds to continue
its service of providing craft and
hobby materials for hospitalized
In addition, Lubeck said, an
annual Christmas party com-
plete with gifts, refreshments
and Santa Claus is sponsored by
Galens for the youngsters. Ga-
lens also provides funds for pur-
chase of children's books and
games for general use in the hos-
Last year the drive netted thej
society approximately $6,500 after
a goal of $6,000 was set by the or-j
ganization to maintain its opera-
tions which have benefited an es-
timated 25,000 children since the
program started.
Children between the ages of
six and 14 make most use of the
workshop facilities, Lubeck said.

IN GALENS SHOP-Young patients at' University Hospital use
materials furnished by Galens Society to fill long hours of wait-
ing and recuperation. Galens' annual tag day is scheduled for
Friday and Saturday with a goal of $6,500 to support children's
recreation at the hospital.

ranging from clay and plywood to
pottery kilns and power tools are
used throughout the day in the
workshop under the guidance and
supervision of Harvey Katchan of
the University Hospital School.
Katchan uses the varied means
at his disposal in the Galens shop
to keep the children busy while re-
cuperating from illnesses and op-

Some youthful patients can
make their own way to the shop;
others must be wheeled in on
chairs or beds to take part in
shop activities.
Pride of the children at the
warkshop is "Sport," a chubby
raccoon donated by a former pa-
tient. "Sport" has a neat wire cage
to spend his quiet evenings in, but
during the day he is more often
found in the company of the chil-
dren at the Galens shop.

FUNDS FROM the sale of fish-
ing licenses and federal fish res-
toration money support the opera-
tion, and the University provides
the central office and laboratory
facilities at the Museums Annex
on North University.
Given the responsibility for
determining proper management
practices to improve sport fish-
ing in Michigan, the Institute is
presently carrying out many dif-
ferent investigations.
How can lakes and streams be
improved for fishing? What kinds
of fish inhabit our lakes and
streams, and how many of each
kind are there?
How do these fish migrate,
grow, and reproduce? What do
they eat, and what are their ene-
mies? How effective are existing
fishing regulations?
When the answers to these ques-
tions are known, Conservation men
will know how to manage the fish
population so that every, fisher-
man will get his limit.
Organized in 1931 with one pro-
fessor hired on a part-time basis.
with funds supplied by the Izaak
Walton League, the Institute now
employs a director, an assistant
director, and 14 fishery biologists.

Prof. Losh pointed out that
any one of December's bright
planets, or a configuration of
them, easily could have been the
Christmas sign.
Star gazers tomorrow will be able
to view the Northern Cross, known
as Cygnus, as it moves across the
December sky from the zenith to
the northwest, gradually assum-
ing more and more of a vertical po-
sition. According to Prof. Hazel M.
Losh, of the astronomy depart-
ment, the long bar of the cross will
be outlined upright against the
sky by Christmas eve.

~~~~cade jewelry
December 3, 1953
Dear Sir:
To you who are about to purchase your first gem.
Certainty, you have heard about quality. It seems to be a password to any
jewelry store, regardless of the general grade of gems they sell.
There are several reasons for owning a diamond. Some might wish to acquire
diamonds as a display of wealth. To most of us, however, it is a sincere desire to own
something fine. We sometimes call it "Our pride of possession." To be proud of your diamond,
YOU must know that it is a fine diamond.
Diamond values may vary from as little as $200.00 per carat to more than
$2,000.00 per carat. This will depend on many factors of quality and weight.
The qualified gem dealer who sincerely recommends a fine quality diamond is not,
by this statement, trying to sell you an expensive gem. A wise purchaser will seek the
counsel of a jeweler he can trust and state the amount he wishesto spend, it is then the jeweler's
obligation to select a diamond of as fine a gem quality as he can afford to buy.

10:32 p.m. on December 21, Prof.
Losh explains. At this time the sun
reaches the winter solstice, the
most southerly point of its appar-
ent yearly journey around the
earth. From then on the days be-
come longer and nights shorter.
